This funding will be provided for the following programmes of study:

  • Bachelor of Education (BEd)
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)

This bursary is awarded for one academic year at a time and if you can show proof of academic success the bursary may be renewed each year until the recipient of the bursary has qualified as a teacher. 

The Funza Lushaka bursary covers the following expenses:

  • Tuition fees
  • Accommodation including meals
  • Books and learning materials
  • A possible small allowance for monthly living expenses

Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they received the bursary.
